Ghana’s agricultural sector is still very dependent on rainfall and general weather patterns. The consequence, however, is that in years when rainfall patterns have not been favourable, food production  is drastically hampered.

The farmers made the call at a one-day regional consultative forum organized by the Coalition of Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (CSADA), a group of Civil Society Organizations in Tamale, in partnership with the Northern Patriots in Research and Advocacy (NORPRA) and the Concerned Citizens Association of Tamale (CCAT).
